People say that Israelis and Palestinians will never come together for peace. Well, it seems that those people haven't come across initiatives like Gisha.
Meaning "access" or "approach," Gisha is an Israeli not-for-profit organization whose goal is to protect the freedom of movement of Palestinians, especially Palestinians living in Gaza. It is run by a group of Jewish and Arab activists and legal practitioners who are working against the Israeli army's legal and military efforts to turn Palestinian territories, particularly Gaza, into ghettos.
Recently, the group launched a 90 second animated video on the closure of Gaza. You can read about the animation, "Closed Zone," on the group's website here.
Sound interesting? Watch the video below. By allowing us to understand and empathize with one another, maybe groups like Gisha can show us that peace isn't completely elusive - even in the Holy Land.
